FORTH WORTH, Texas (BP) – From time to time, God distinctly superintends circumstances at particular places to prompt Christians to evangelize.
When Matt Queen saw a gun in a man's lap, it immediately became the scariest evangelistic visit of his life. "Are you going to shoot me with that?" he asked.
"Anyone who knows enough of the Gospel to have heard it, believed it and been saved by it knows enough of the Gospel to share it," Matt Queen writes of helping people to tell God in prayer the reason they need a Savior.
Evangelism professor Matt Queen proposes that Christians test themselves to be sure they are conveying the Gospel to a lost world, not just talking about it among themselves. Drawing from Judges 12:1-6, Queen calls the test "a Gospel Shibboleth."
Professor and columnist Matt Queen offers eight questions Christians should ask to evaluate their evangelism and its methods biblically.
